Puck Talk Live Podcast: Episode 52 – Central Division Predictions
LISTEN TO PODCAST HERE!
On episode 52 of the podcast, the boys review their Central Division predictions. While the Detroit Red Wings are almost certainly going to be at the bottom, make sure to watch Dylan Larkin, the Wings’ best young player. The Chicago Blackhawks are discussed in detail, including their carrousel of defencemen. Ian Mitchell, Brent Seabrook, Adam Boqvist, and Nikita Zadorov are all possible options for the third defensive pairing. The boys all agree that the Nashville Predators are an extremely boom or bust team that is very reliant on Juuse Saros to perform well.
The top teams in the division are also in a tight race for first place. While the Carolina Hurricanes are an extremely strong team, the trio agrees goaltending is their weakest point. However, their incredible defence and top-tier offence makes up for it. Their young forwards could make up the best first line in the league. The favorite to win the division is the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Tampa Bay Lightning. Even with Nikita Kucherov out for the season, the Lightning still have an incredibly dangerous offence. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s episode covering the West Division!
